THE CLOTHES SHOW 2016 PART II | BRANDS & THE LIVE FASHION SHOW


The Clothes Show experience continues with my second instalment! 
Taking you through the Brands that made their appearance this year and a visual diary of the Live Fashion Show in the Alcatel Theatre!

So if you haven't caught up already on Part I of my Clothes Show diary, then you still can HERE


I LIKE THE WAY YOU MOVE

Not only is The Clothes Show the ULTIMATE shopping experience day 
but also included in your ticket is a seat in the fashion theatre for a runway show of fashion, music and dance.
And boy do they DANCE!

There's always a celeb or two to be seen gracing the stage and this year we had the delightful Mark Wright hosting the show.
He also introduced the delicious and very shirtless model, Christian! Who came out to give one lucky guest a goody bag.
No matter how much I jumped up and down though the 'fan cam' did not choose me 😒
Maybe next time.
(Hint* there's a picture of the bodacious Christian further down this post)

I did hear it on the grapevine that The Clothes Show will be moving to Liverpool from next year and this was confirmed during the Live show portion of the day. 
Moving to an area that will be almost 3 times the size of the Birmingham NEC.
The skies the limit, however this is now even further away from where I live 🙈
Guess that's an excuse to spend a weekend up in Liverpool then!

There was a pretty damn good selection of brands this year, all decked out in their finest to drum up some sales!

My absolute favourite stands by far this year were - 

SPECTRUM COLLECTIONS
MODELS OWN 
ELEMIS
BARRY M
MANIÈRE DE VOIR
MOON GLOW
GYMSHARK

Admittedly most of them are all beauty based but hey I live for makeup and cleansing products okaaay!

But why these brands!? I hear you ask.
Well, because I love it when a brand goes all out for The Clothes Show and really tries to make an impression with their concession.
For example the Models Own stand is always a sight to behold, with flashing lights, bright neon colours, HUGE signs as far as the eye can see!
It really is head and shoulders above the rest in terms of showmanship and aesthetics.


Similarly Spectrum Collections made a fabulous appearance this year with their all white marble, cotton candy infused pop up shop of dreams!
Every little detail was to die for, right down to the old fashioned cash register which was of course, pink!
Their stand was by far one of the busiest throughout the day and it was a struggle to even get a look in!
Luckily my sister and I waited until nearer the end of the day to have a serious indulge and shop around.

Some amazing bargains from the Spectrum babes at this event. 😉
So get ready for tomorrow's Part III of this instalment all about my haul!


ONLY disappointment was that Rimmel were nowhere to be seen this year!

Their goody bags are always unbelievable so I was pretty bummed that I couldn't snag one.





FASHION!

The live fashion shows are just incredible and you're always sure to catch an up and coming music act!
My sister attended The Clothes Show the year that The Saturdays played which subsequently gave them a boost for their career!
This year however they mixed things up a little and had a couple of music acts performing whilst some of the models were walking
In a similar vein to the Victoria's Secret shows!

The main headline acts this year were and Charlotte OC and Daecolm and I definitely think I've found myself a new artist to listen.
Charlotte was captivating, so eerily mysterious and her vocals were gorgeous.

Now one of my favourite things about the live shows is that the models don't just walk.
 They jump, they strut, they shimmy shake and dance their way down the runway and this year was no exception!

So without further ado, enjoy my visual montage of the show.








WELL HELLO CHRISTIAN!








And that's a wrap!
Make sure you stay tuned for Part III and a haul of all the goodies I got at The Clothes Show!
